The Lines Have Been Drawn...

I mentioned before that Bishop Patrick O'Donogue was to be hauled up before the Education Select Committee because he was so unreasonable as to suggest that Catholic Schools might actually want to teach the Catholic Faith...

Another terribly unreasonable idea seems to be that Catholic Schools should not support charities which directly oppose the values of the Catholic Church. What !!!?? Is the Bishop actually suggesting that Catholic schoolchildren should not help to pay for abortions (through charity events such as Jeans for Genes Day) with their pocket-money?

You can read a fuller account over at John Smeaton's Blog. It seems the Bishop did well. John suggests that people might want to write to him to congratulate him on making a stand with his document Fit for Mission? Schools and also to show their support.

Address all letters to: Bishop’s Apartment, Cathedral House, Balmoral Road, Lancaster, LA1 3BT.

Education select committee = pinheads!

Having read John Smeatons blog the gist of the questions they put to the Bishop showed just how ignorant and rude these people really are? And they are supposedly the creme-de-la-creme from the corridors of British education telling us how to educate our kids - Yikes! Sack the lot of them and put 'The Muppets' in charge!

All round support for our Bishop please!

Oh yes, Pod did well but then he's a lovely man, unlike the egregious Paul Holmes MP who gratuitously rude to the witnesses.

Well said. I do hope people will take time to write to the Bishop.
